A group of 6 of us (3 couples) went on vacation together and stayed at Dreams Tulum; we were looking for some adventurous things to do that would also teach us a little something about our beautiful surroundings. This led us to Adrian and Viajes Conciencia. Adrian was phenomenal! From the first time we contacted him through his website email, he was quick to respond, full of information about what we could expect, and always got back to us in a timely fashion when we pestered him with more questions. We did two tours with Adrian: the first day we went to the Mayan ruins at Tulum (neat to see, but much better to do in a small group where you can hear everything your guide is saying and you get there before the crowds, when it's peaceful), swimming in an amazing cenote (perfectly clear, clean water with caves you can swim through with just a snorkel), lunch at a local spot on the beach (deeeeelicious fresh food, the best fresh fruit juice, and enough time planned in for a quick siesta in the hammocks on the beach), and then to Playa Acumel for swimming with green turtles (a once-in-a-lifetime experience; absolutely breathtaking to be right next to these endangered turtles in their native habitat). Adrian made sure we always knew how to be respectful of the animals and their environment, he made sure we had good equipment, and we always felt safe everywhere we went. The second day of our tour with Adrian we did THE coolest adventure possible - swimming with whale sharks!! Adrian explained why we shouldn't be afraid (why the sharks are in this area, what they eat - plankton, whew! - how to best swim next to them to get the best view, why it's dangerous for the animals to touch them), and then jumped in with us to guide us through the experience. Another once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Within just the first few hours of our trip Adrian became a friend with whom we shared great conversation. I can't recommend Viajes Conciencia enough - you won't regret choosing them over any other tour operator in the area. If it costs a little bit more, it's because you get THAT MUCH MORE of a wonderful experience. So worth it!!! Adrian and his tours are what made our vacation worthwhile!!
